ASPCAPro.org is hosting a free one-hour webinar on “Blood Sports: Investigating and Prosecuting Animal Fighting Cases” on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 3 p.m. Eastern time. This free webinar will be presented by Geoff Fleck, Criminal Justice Program Contract Attorney, Animal Legal Defense Fund.
The following information on this webinar is from the ASPCAPro website:
“Explore the horrific and clandestine world of animal fighting through the experienced eyes of a former prosecutor. Geoff Fleck will discuss specialized investigative techniques including effective warrant application and execution, the evidence to look for and seize, and trial strategies designed to insure a successful outcome in these often difficult cases.
The session will address the challenges investigators and prosecutors are likely to face – including cultural and evidentiary hurdles. Fleck will emphasize the importance of aggressive prosecutions and harsh sentences – to not only insure a just verdict for the tragically exploited non-human animals involved, but the related crimes and human violence that inevitably result from the cruel abomination of organized animal fighting.”
